Former Super Eagles handler, Stephen Keshi has accused the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) if misleading Nigerians even after he turned down a new contract from them.
The ex international who has been out of contract since the Eagles crashed out of the 2014 World Cup also missed an opportunity to manage Burkina Faso’s team.
He told reporters he and his agent never received contract terms from the NFF.
“How come he is turning around to say he is offering me a new contract, and that I’m the one stalling. I’ve told them I don’t want the job. I’m tired of coaching and being surrounded by people who don’t want me in the job.” He stated.
Keshi also denied being paid outstanding salaries.
“I heard also Amaju said he has paid us everything, that he is
not owing us. It is a lie, big-time lie. He is owing us two months plus our winning bonus for the game against Sudan. What is he talking about? Because I am keeping quiet, I don’t want to talk? Now if they want me to talk, I will start talking and let Nigerians know what is happening.
He continued, ”I don’t understand, how can Amaju, who says he is the president of Nigerian football, be lying to Nigerians? Is that how he wants to run Nigeria Football? They are owing us money they have not paid and instead of him to say okay there is no money yet or something, he is telling everyone he has paid everything.”
